Triathlon

 

Group Build

  • GRP   Group Build (see description below)
        (✓ SPONSORED by Great Hobbies - Ottawa Trainyards)

 

Collection

A Collection is any group of five (5) or more closely-related items, as defined below:

  • TYPE Collection
    A group of 5 models of a particular TYPE.
    (May be different scales.)

    Example:
    Different variants of North American P-51 Mustang aircraft: P-51B, P-51C, P-51D, P-51K, XP-51F

  • THEME Collection
    A group of 5 models that share a common theme.
    (May be different types & scales.)

    Example:
    Vehicles from Star Wars movies: Rebel snowspeeder, Jawa sandcrawler, Imperial AT-AT walker, X-wing fighter, Imperial Star Destroyer

 

Triathlon

A Triathlon entry is a group of three (3) models, each model being from a different division.

Examples:

  • Acceptable:
    • an airliner (Aircraft 119)
    • a WW2 tank (Military Vehicles/Ordnance 205)
    • a submarine (Ships 405)

  • NOT Acceptable:
    • an airliner (Aircraft 119)
    • a helicopter (Aircraft 117)
    • a submarine (Ships 405)

Like a Collection, a Triathlon entry is considered to be a single, standalone entry.
Models within a Triathlon entry cannot also be entered into any other categories.
A Triathlon entry cannot be comprised of models entered in other separate categories.

 

Group Build

A Group Build entry must be a DIORAMA that is built by at least 3 modellers.

The intent of the Group Build is to provide a way for a group of modellers to closely collaborate to create a diorama.

The Entry Form for the Group Build diorama entry must identify all three modellers that contributed to the diorama entry, and describe what each modeller contributed.
Each modeller must contribute at least one model and/or a significant component to the diorama (e.g., central model, group of figures, diorama base, etc.).

The Group Build diorama entry is the only exception to the rule that "All entries must be the sole work of the [one] person whose name is on the corresponding Entry Form" although it must conform to all other rules.

Like a Collection or Triathlon entry, a Group Build diorama entry is considered to be a single, standalone entry; the models/components of the diorama cannot be entered into any other categories, and the diorama cannot be comprised of models entered in other separate categories.

A Group Build diorama entry IS NOT eligible for any theme awards, special awards, or summary awards.
